Patience can sure be a virtue but sometimes it sure is a pain. While weather has shut down most of the United States to riding our skis, we’re waiting for the latest updates from our event promoters. Thankfully, the crew putting on the Greenhulk.net HydroDrags has been hard at work cementing the 2014 locations and dates.
Recently, The Watercraft Journal announced the venue and date for Round 1 of the fastest racing in the sport, but now we can break the news that Round 2 will be raiding the hometown of Greenhulk.net owner and founder Jerry Gaddis, Morgan City, Louisiana.
The city managers have signed with HydroDrag series promoter Mikey Young to hold a dual event (drag racing, closed course and freestyle) in Morgan City the weekend of May 1st through May 4th, also making it the official dates for annual Mudbug for this year.
Previous Mudbugs featured some of the fastest time trials in all of jetskiing, but the growth of the event as well as the dangers in hosting such an event caused the radar runs to be cancelled at the ‘Bug and moved over to the licensed and and insured HydroDrag series.
Thursday will be a general ride day, with closed course racing on Friday and the first part of Saturday. The HydoDrags will kickoff after the three classes of closed course races conclude Saturday morning with Speed Alley on Sunday.
As is with the “welcome to all” philosophy of Greenhulk, Jerry extended the invite, “Feel free to come earlier than May first. I know many of you do every year.”
